Thanks again to Charlotte, who hosts the radio program, and to all the organizers of The Reading Room on the Isle of Skye, and The Baker Prize.

A look at settings from The Thorn Tree

I’m just back from Great Britain. I began with the Scottish launch of The Thorn Tree, in the Isle of Skye, travelled south to Glasgow and west to Arran — all settings in the novel. The Thorn Tree got a wonderful reception at the Skeabost Hotel near Portree, and I enjoyed wandering over hills that would have been dear to Agatha. Here are a couple of photos. (And if you haven’t picked up a copy of the book yet and would to, links are below the photos.
